Townsite Manager, Riding Mountain National Park
The boil water advisory for the Clear Lake Cabin Area has been lifted.
Also the shower building should open early next week, we are targeting June 1, however it maybe a day or two later as we are currently getting some plumbing repairs and concrete work done around the building.
The Townsite washroom will be open for Monday and other individual washrooms in the cabin area will gradually open as we bring staff on.

Limited visitor access and basic services resume at Riding Mountain National Park
Issued: May 27, 2020
Starting June 1, 2020 Riding Mountain National Park will offer limited visitor access and basic services.
Visitors will be able to access as the following services and facilities:
• day-use trails, including cycling and horse back riding access on designated trails and pathways;
• day-use areas, including green spaces, picnic areas, and beach areas;
• public toilets and other visitor facilities;
• the townsite of Wasagaming, and;
• the bison enclosure at Lake Audy
Until June 1, these facilities remain closed and we ask that visitors respect these closures in order to allow park staff to do the necessary work to prepare for opening.
The large parking lot in Wasagaming will be open as will the smaller parking lots along Wasagaming Drive. The parking lot beside the Visitor Centre as well as the parking lot on the corner of Columbine and Ta-Wa-Pit will be under construction throughout June.
All boating, including motorboats, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, etc. is prohibited on all park waters until our aquatic invasive species prevention program is fully operational. We are aiming to resume this service by June 12, 2020.
Visiting Riding Mountain National Park will be different than it has been in the past. Visitors are asked to plan ahead by checking the Riding Mountain National Park website before they travel to find out:
• what is open
• what they can expect
• how to prepare for their visit

Hi Clear Lake Cabin Owners,
We would like to introduce ourselves – Wendy & Vince, the owners of the Clear Lake Trading Post. This is our 4th season owning the grocery store and would like to pass on our appreciation to all the local cottage owners who have shopped with us the past few years. As we begin a different season with COVID-19, we have implemented an online grocery store for all your lake essentials. Lake shopping is made easy with a click and order system, where your groceries can be picked up via curbside pickup or delivered to your cottage. We offer fresh baked bread, buns, banana bread and other baked treats along with produce, dairy, meat, deli salads and dry goods. We feel at this time this offers the community the safest option to shop local, while protecting yourselves and our 2 small children who enjoy being in the store and part of our family run business.
If you are interested in purchasing from our online store, please send an email to email@example.com and we will provide you with an exclusive discount code for 10% off all grocery orders online over $35.00.
